Police have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with an armed robbery at the First Choice Travel Shop in Tonbridge yesterday.
Police are appealing to anyone who may have seen someone acting suspiciously in the area around the time of the robbery. They’re also appealing to any costume and fancy dress shop owners who may have recently sold a distinctive red wig.
The man is described as being in his 50s, of athletic build, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and was wearing a grey or white hoodie, black jeans, a dark coloured puffer jacket and gloves. He spoke with a local accent.
Four members of staff and the same number of customers were in the shop at the time of the incident.
The man escaped with a quantity of cash a few minutes later and was seen running towards a supermarket via Angel Walk and Angel Lane. Police believe he may have had a getaway car waiting for him.
